NAME
       metaclass - a pragma for installing and using Class::MOP metaclasses

VERSION
       version 2.2009

SYNOPSIS
         package MyClass;

         # use Class::MOP::Class
         use metaclass;

         # ... or use a custom metaclass
         use metaclass 'MyMetaClass';

         # ... or use a custom metaclass
         # and custom attribute and method
         # metaclasses
         use metaclass 'MyMetaClass' => (
             'attribute_metaclass' => 'MyAttributeMetaClass',
             'method_metaclass'    => 'MyMethodMetaClass',
         );

         # ... or just specify custom attribute
         # and method classes, and Class::MOP::Class
         # is the assumed metaclass
         use metaclass (
             'attribute_metaclass' => 'MyAttributeMetaClass',
             'method_metaclass'    => 'MyMethodMetaClass',
         );

         # if we'd rather not install a 'meta' method, we can do this
         use metaclass meta_name => undef;
         # or if we'd like it to have a different name,
         use metaclass meta_name => 'my_meta';

DESCRIPTION
       This is a pragma to make it easier to use a specific metaclass and a
       set of custom attribute and method metaclasses. It also installs a
       "meta" method to your class as well, unless "undef" is passed to the
       "meta_name" option.

       Note that if you are using Moose, you most likely do not want to be
       using this - look into Moose::Util::MetaRole instead.
